The instigator of learning how to make these adorable floral crowns was a Bachelorette party I had the pleasure of participating in. They ended up being so colorful and a fun accessory for all of us girls to wear while celebrating all over Fort Worth! I chose faux flowers so they would be durable and a keepsake for all of us to have. Cause who doesn’t need a floral crown hanging around just in case?!
Faux Flowers. Choose any you’d like, be sure to get a mix of sizes within your floral selections. I wanted to have white for the bride, and ended up finding yellow, peach and hot pink. It created a really awesome ombre color palette!
Floral Tape. Choose a color that matches your stems, I used green.
Headbands. I found mine at Forever 21.
Step 1: Using your wire cutters, cut your stems down to about 6″ long, you will trim off the extra as you add them to the headband. This helped give me a clear picture of what I had to work with, by color. As I mentioned, it’s best to have a few sizes of flowers to work with as you’ll need the smaller buds to fill in some spaces so the crown looks really full.
Step 2: Using your floral tape (which is AMAZING by the way) start with your biggest flowers and adhere them to the center of the headband. You’re creating a focal point with the biggest flowers. Place the stem on your headband and start wrapping. You can see how I added a big flower, than filled in with the smaller ones around it.
Step 4: Place the stem, wrap in floral tape, trim the extra stem, and repeat! Keep filling in until you’re happy with the result. Quick Tip: I tried them on a few times as I was placing the flowers to make sure the shape was coming along nicely.
When you’re finished up, I used my floral tape to cover the headband one more time so it was all smooth. And that should do it! Super easy, right?!
